Tequila Fresca, Clementine's( Barbara Haddock Taylor, The Baltimore Sun / June 13, 2012 )
How to Make The Tequila Fresca
3 oz. 1800 Silver tequila
Juice of 1/2 lime
3-inch stalk of fresh tarragon, shredded
1 1/2 oz. basil-lime syrup
1 1/2 oz. rosemary-lemon syrup
Shake all ingredients "like hell," for thirty seconds; strain into a chilled martini glass.
"Customers would bring in their own bottle [of liquor], I'd mix up a homemade syrup of whatever fresh herbs we had at the time, then add their hooch and top with soda water," Clementine's Cristin Dadant said.
Out of this organic process came the recipe for the bright, bold Tequila Fresca, the perfect summertime drink to order when hitting up the newly opened Clementine at the Creative Alliance.
